The Last Guardian is Being Developed in “Top Form,” Teases Shuhei Yoshida
It’s that time of the year again when Sony reminds us not to give up hope on The Last Guardian, and that the title is still in development.
Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida was recently asked by Japanese magazine Famitsu to comment on the fate of the title. Yoshida was quick to state that it’s being developed in a “top form” and that fans should stay tuned.
We’re developing it in top form. … Maybe I said too much? (Laughs)
We’re continuing to develop it tenaciously, please stay tuned.
Do we dare hope to see some kind of teaser at TGS 2014? The chances are very slim for that but we can still hope.
The Last Guardian was officially announced for the PlayStation 3 back in 2011 but since then the company has remained silent on any kind of progress. Earlier this year it was assumed that Sony had decided to scrap the project, after which a company representative claimed to be still working on it.
The Last Guardian is expected to share stylistic, thematic, and gameplay elements with Ueda’s previous titles, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The game though has already seen to numerous delays, among which was the departure of Fumito Ueda, lead designer and director.
It’s thought that Sony has now shifted the game to be released on the PlayStation 4 instead.
